Focus on Kansas City: Can Raiders slow high-powered Chiefs in AFC West showdown?

One needn’t be well versed in football analytics to realize the Raiders may be in a heap of trouble in Kansas City on Sunday.

All you need to know is no NFL team has given up more big passing plays than the Raiders defense (55 plays of 20 yards or more), and no team has delivered more huge plays in the passing game than the Chiefs.

If the Raiders couldn’t stop the offensively-challenged Jets from matching their season-high in points and explosive pass plays in a humiliating 34-3 loss on Sunday, it stands to reason they’ll struggle against the NFL’s most dynamic aerial attack.
